This weekend is the last chance to see Kevin Regan (co-director of Famous Accountants) and Cooper Holoweski‘s show at STOREFRONT. Holoweski presents mixed-media pieces about the dream of a middle-class utopia. Using imagery that ranges from Herman Miller furniture to the Ford Elmont Station Wagon, Holoweski proclaims a sincere nostalgia for the 20th century capitalist utopia–while understanding that it never really existed. Regan’s mischievous sense of humor yields a set of collages inspired by personal events (all made in 1996), that reflect an incisively sardonic worldview in which mayhem hovers over the advertised comforts of American life.
